geetha-johri11A few days after the CBI dropped charges against Geetha Johri in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, Gujarat’s first woman IPS officer was promoted to DGP rank.

At present, Johri serves as the Managing Director of the Gujarat State Police Housing Corporation in Gandhinagar. As per the issuance of a Gujarat home department official notification, she has been promoted from the rank of Additional DGP to the Director General of Police and will continue at her present post as Managing Director of the Gujarat State Police Housing Corporation.

Johri had filed a first investigation report (FIR) in the Supreme Court in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case and the sudden disappearance of his wife Kausar Bi, which ultimately led to the arrest of three IPS officers. Two of them are from Gujarat, including D G Vanzara and the other is from Rajasthan.

ADGP, CID (Crime and Railways), Pramod Kumar has been promoted as DGP and will continue to serve in the same post. IGP level officers who were promoted include K K Ojha, currently serving as the Principal of Police Training Centre in Junagadh and P B Gondia, presently a Joint Director with the Civil Defence Organisation in the city. Both these IPS officers belong to the 1987 batch and have been promoted as ADGP.
